Utah’s Tiered License & Retesting

In 2008 Utah adopted a tiered motorcycle license system. If you test on a 649cc or less motorcycle or scooter you will be restricted to 649cc or less. If you test on a motorcycle or scooter larger than 650cc you will be allowed to ride any motorcycle or scooter.

When you take the Basic Rider Course on our 250cc trainer motorcycles, successful completion will waive the riding portion of the license test for an up to 649cc endorsement. To get an endorsement for motorcycles above 649cc you have a few options:

  • Re-test on your bike within 30 days of class – No Extra Cost
    1. Bring your bike to the second day of class to test directly after.
    2. Re-test times are scheduled weekly and are posted every Thursday on our voicemail and Facebook. These are open testing times so no need to schedule.
    3. You will need to bring your Basic Course Completion Card, a Motorcycle Permit, Registration and proof of Insurance.
  • Re-testing on our 650cc motorcycle within 30 days of your basic rider course. Cost for rental is $20.
    1. No permit or license necessary to rent our bike.
    2. Can usually be completed directly after class.
  • If you are more than 30 days past your basic course
    1. Take the Experienced Rider Course (BRC2) with the license waiver option on your personal motorcycle that is 650cc or larger for $50.
